April Fools Day!

Did any of you get a trick played on you today? If so we want to hear about it! Mark and I had a pretty low key day. Mark has been busy cutting and splitting wood for next year!

I have taken on some new changes with my flock. I rehomed some so that I could bring in young blood. Here are my teenagers that my friend and I hatched out. They are 10 weeks and hanging with the older hens in the big run.

Willow is up front, Hennifer behind her and then Webster
Hennifer and Webster. Can’t wait till he crows!
Willow is my favorite.
Here are the teenagers outside the run for the first time! 😂
I sure hope they make it into the coop tonight.

Then I have the babies. They are 7 and 8 weeks old. They are doing awesome in the brooder coop. Three sapphire gems, Wendy, Mabel and Skeeter. One buff Orpington named Buffy. And two Welsummers named Nelly and Shelly. 🤦🏼‍♀️

This mama is a barnyard mix named Beatrice. She has 6 eggs under her that have mixes as well. But two of these eggs are frizzles! I am so excited. She hatches on April 6th!

This mama is a Cuckoo Maran. She has Oliver Egger, Cochin, Jubilee Orpington, Sanjak Longcrowers underneath her. Her name is Broody.

Of course this is what I collected today from the girls.

Nevertheless I am going to be a busy chicken mama now through the end of summer!

Today I did trim work in the château. It is getting closer! We will go get the bed next week. Tomorrow I will be busy mopping the floor from the drywall work.

Progress… ❤️

  1. Mark has such cool tools and you have your hands full with the chicks. I would say life is good on the island. Yes, I am a little jealous. ♥️
